North Korea reopens hotline with South in bid to mend ties

North Korea has restored communication lines with the South, months after it cut a cross-border hotline.

The move comes days after the country's leader Kim Jong-un said he was willing to restore communication as a conditional olive branch.

However, Pyongyang also said the restoration of their relationship was dependent on the "attitude of South Korean authorities".

North Korea has also recently been ramping up its military tests.

It has fired four missiles in less than a month - a sign that it has no intention of slowing down its arms development.

North and South Korea are technically still at war because no peace agreement was reached when the Korean War ended in 1953.
